    • Latest Update via SSH Destroyed WebGUI, Samba, Other Services

      New

      I SSH'd into my box and did the normal sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade to notice a slew of updates. Some of them did not want to cooperate, so I did a sudo apt-get dist-upgrade as I knew that Debian 9 was officially released. Many of the upgrades asked about the local configuration file and let me choose to keep the local file or the maintaner's version. I chose to keep the local file instead of the maintainer's version for each instance.

      I am now left with OMV in a very unusable state. SSH still works, but the WebGUI is broken, Samba is broken, Plex, Syncthing, BitTorrent, etc. are all broken. Thankfully, I can still browse my files in ZFS, so I can backup my data. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Hope you have a backup because OMV 3.x does not work with Debian 9 Stretch at all and this would be a nightmare to rollback. The fact that you had stable in your sources.list instead of jessie means your system would upgrade to Debian 9 as soon as Debian 9 was marked stable. You must have installed Debian manually since the OMV installer doesn't use stable in sources.list. So, there is nothing OMV could do to prevent this.

      Please don't PM for support... Too many PMs!

      Thanks for your response @ryecoaaron, I believe the problem lies within the fact that I had doctored the sources.list with netselect. I hadn't considered it changing the mirrors altogether in that manner. Unfortunately, my latest clonezilla backup is quite old. It looks like I'll simply be doing a reinstall. I'll mark this as resolved.

      Debian has typically used an active root user where Ubuntu does not. This means you would su to the root user to execute root commands on Debian/OMV and use sudo to execute root commands on Ubuntu. A lot of people think using sudo is safer but I don't have a strong opinion either way. sudo is a requirement of OMV though...

      Ah, OK, I suppose it's a difference in philosophies, then. I've read multiple opinions on how to navigate through a system, but I personally try not to do too many things as root as I've really screwed myself over in the past by modifying or deleting things as a root user; whereas I would have gotten a request for elevated privileges if I was just my normal user.
